Have you undertaken any kind of further study since leaving Bedales and have you gained any further qualifications?

I did a four year degree at the European School of Osteopathy. I graduated with an Integrated Masters in Osteopathy. 

What kind of work are you currently involved in, and how and why have you come to be doing it?

I am an Osteopath working as an associate in a small clinic in Buckinghamshire. I was offered the job straight out of university by one of my tutors. In 6.1 I thought I wanted to study medicine and then possibly physiotherapy, however although I thought they were both interesting neither of them were quite right for me. I then looked into becoming an osteopath and have never looked back. 

Did attending Bedales help you in getting to where you are now and how satisfied are you with what you are doing?

Anne and Dennis Archer's support with my university application during my first gap year was unparalleled and I don't know what I would have done without it. Particular individuals at Bedales were always there if I ever needed any help and I doubt I would have got the grades I did without it. I was offered places at both universities I applied to. I really enjoy what I do now, particularly treating pregnant women and new mothers.

Have you been involved in any other interesting activities or occupations since leaving school?

I still ride but that hasn't changed since I left Bedales. I played hockey for Petersfield for a while but have now sadly moved too far away.
